A Radical Idea - Control Your Own Ports

As with most political controversies, don’t let the facts get in the way of the arguments.  Already enough attention has been placed on the Dubai Ports government owned operations to make a world voyage on a Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Co. ship resemble a slow boat to China.  At Concorde speed the alarm alerts flash while rational lessons are ignored or slip at a snail's pace into the public consciousness.  The central issue is so clear that a blind man could see.  But not the media, nor the brain washed public and certainly not the great sages of international commerce . . . how about a little class in economic self-interest!

Amnesty Capitulation Assures a Failed Society

After decades of documenting the mad consequences of an "Open Borders" policy, voices of rational and sane immigration, ready themselves for definitive betrayal from their phony conservative brethren. Mark Krikorian, Roy Beck, Peter Brimelow and Pat Buchanan have waged the crusade to save the nation from the forces of greedy corporatists and demented egalitarianism. Proponents of limitless immigration are committed to the unilateral destruction of what once made America, "A City upon a Hill".

Know Nothing - The Reality of the American Experience

Oh, remember those "good old days". Discrimination and ethnic exclusion was the norm and a political party stood for "red meat" self-interest. The catcalls today ring with a "PC" note, how dare anyone even allude that restricting immigration can be part of open debate? The memory of the American Republican Party fades into vagueness of ignorance, knowing history is not a requirement of the modern Know Nothings. If you are one of these marginal historians, how can you be expected to appreciate the anti-immigrant sentiment that existed over a century and half ago?

Taxes are forcing you out of your home

Taxes Taxes Taxes everywhere, but not a buck left to spend! Anyone who is still breathing and coping with a medicated society and head games, knows that disposable income is falling faster than a sinking U.S. Dollar. The root cause of a fading prosperity can be directly traced to the amplified theft that is reverberating throughout an economy of smoke and mirrors.  Add it up and read the bottom line. If there is no indignation, the robbery will just escalate.

Terrorism

At the core of terrorism is the desire to destroy the economy, institutions and culture of States that are viewed as ultimate EVIL, from the diseased minds of committed fanatics. Hatred is their shared value. It is hard to envision that the world community has as their objective, the elimination of the reasons that breed people, who's purpose in life is to commit an act of genocide. These terrorists viewed their deeds as acts of war. America has concluded they are actions of madmen. I submit that for those who's solution is the elimination of all who hate the West, a tranquil environment can never exist. Why not attempt an approach that halts adding gasoline to the fire?

American Existentialism Real or Fiction?

Were the French Existentialists correct in concluding that the "American character swaggered with confidence and naive optimism?"  Sartre observed, "evil is not an American concept. There is no pessimism in America regarding human nature and social organization." Beauvoir chimed in that Americans had no "feeling for sin and for remorse." And Camus, thought Americans "lacked a sense of anguish about the problems of existence, authenticity and alienation."  In Carlin Romano's book review of Existential America by George Cotkin, Mr. Romano argues "On the contrary, Cotkin shows in the bulk of his study, "the French missed certain darker and deeper elements in the history of the American mind and spirit." For Cotkin, the "very notion of America as bereft of anguish is absurd. Death and despair appear as much in the American collective consciousness as does the luck-and-pluck optimism of Horatio Alger's heroes".

What is Conservative Populism?

Do you consider yourself a conservative? Many well intentioned but misguided souls like to maintain a fallacy that they are part of the right-wing; especially when they support Republicans. These bewildered partisans have bought into an illusion that a conservative is a supporter of the status quo. They often believe that any politician who proclaims they are a champion of a GOP regime are really traditionalists. Some even go so far as to consider it impossible for any Democrat to hold any sentiments that could possibly resemble a conservative viewpoint.

The American "TC" Saga - Part 2 - STATE

Much of western civilization political thought is devoted to the nature of the STATE. Centuries of experience and aspiration are embroiled in the fundamental dichotomy between the individual and the state. When the understanding of this chronicle is applied to the American Saga, a central question emerges. By what authority does the state claim legitimacy?

Democrats Delusional Worldview

Democratic politics is a false premise experiment. The foundation of the modern liberalism, based upon an erroneous worldview, is a dead end ideology. Compared to the mad NeoCon war-mongering alternative, the fatal attraction of progressives, allures weak minded and desperate people into thinking government can provide solutions. Step back from the false left-right political discussions and focus upon the principles that make up sound and balanced standards for a civil society.

2006 Predictions and Realities

Since 2006 is an election year, it can be safely predicted that the mainstream news will have a focus on covering meaningless political races.  The press will preach how important all these faceless campaigns will be, but in the end, very little ever changes.  What makes this Congressional season different from other cycles is that the undercurrent will be who will emerge to succeed George W. Bush.  In fact the game that will be covered has the hidden agenda of priming the pump for the next emperor to be crowned in 2008.  This is the sad state of affairs of United States national elections.  The politics of substance will be concealed for the appearance of a democratic changing of the guard.  Make no mistake about it the same sentinel for the status quo of establishment socialism is the eventual outcome.

L. Paul Bremer: The Ultimate Ugly American

An Ugly American is a pejorative term for Americans traveling or living abroad who remain ignorant of local culture and judge everything by American standards. So what do you call an administrative occupier who wants to transform a foreign culture into a colonial tool of NeoCon aims and goals? The ultimate is often overused, but in this context, Bremer has demonstrated that he is prominently in the running for such a dubious title.

Howard Beale: Where Are You?

There has never been a more fitting time to resurrect the sermons of our prophet of doom. Mad as hell, just doesn’t mean the same any longer; and who among us, are not willing to take it any more? It doesn’t get any worse, the last straw has been broken, as the courts suck and siphon the last sustenance from society. The Massachusetts high court has just penetrated our privates with their perversion. Rule by precedent is a pretext for legal repression, imposed under the guise of equal rights. Outrage is not enough for their arrogance. The impending outlook of ruin is no longer placed into the future. The future has become now, and there will be no reprieve.
